The jellyfish that weigh over 20 kg are thrown onto the shores of the islands non-stop

After a delay of a few days, a huge swarm of enormous jellyfish arrived on the shores of Crete.
The jellyfish that weigh over twenty kilograms continue to be washed up on the beaches at any given moment.

Explanation of the swarm of jellyfish ► Watch  

The water is brown and warm

When the sea water is relatively warm, combined with a lot of rain and a lack of storms, there are algae blooms and atrophication in the water. This "cocktail" takes place this winter (2024) in Kiryat Haim - the water is brown and contains lots of phytoplankton and zooplankton as seen under the microscope.

These are the worst days for swimming

This is because you don't see anything and suddenly you encounter a crushing burn. Anyone who enters the sea in Kiryat at noon will be burned. This is the justification for the nickname "scorching water".

  1. Spectacular photos in Japan!
    I really liked the informative videos :)
    Nothing to say, we won huge jellyfish that are 80 cm long and weigh 20 kg
    Thanks for the exposure and the wonderful photos and videos!

  2. Hello Moshiko and thank you.
    It is indeed an absolutely crazy year.
    Today's waves will probably be followed by the huge swarm.
    What you describe shows the length of huge arms and the diameter of huge arms... so the amount of venom injected is enormous.
    Have a wonderful day and take care.

  3. Anyone who answers an automatic and says that last year there were also jellyfish this season is confused!!!
    It is true that every winter and towards spring there are individual jellyfish, not swarms, even last year there were, but there is a big sadness! What was last year is a pinch of what is available this season in everything in quantity, sizes, burns they cause...
    Don't take Moti's words about swimming lightly, forget what you knew in the normal seasons in the summer with the jellyfish!
    From personal experience, I say put your hand a few meters close to a giant jellyfish, my hand swelled up, just thinking that some boil will come across it in the face makes it ooze
